Time for a Change – Oil, That Is | Oil Change

A regular oil change is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running without problems for years to come.

You’ve been looking for something a bit different to do so you thought you might drive over to Sun Prairie to stop in at the Wisconsin Farm Technology Days event. But even though it’s not very far to Sun Prairie, you’re wondering if you should get your car checked out first. You’re especially concerned about having your oil changed. You’re not sure when it was last changed, but you’re sure it’s been awhile.

Yes, you should get your oil changed if it’s been awhile. Car Talk says,”Changing your vehicle’s oil is one of the most important things you can do to avoid bringing large bags of money to your mechanic later on.”

Car Talk explains: “Oil undergoes thermal breakdown due to high operating temperature. When this occurs, the oil becomes less effective as a lubricant. And without a good lubricant … parts of the engine rub together and wear each other out.

“Oil also contains additives that have the ability to neutralize acids. Over time, these additives get used up and stop being effective.

“Finally, oil can absorb water, dust and combustion byproducts and also hold them in suspension. Eventually, the oil gets saturated with this stuff and can’t absorb any more. Then that stuff remains in the engine and can cause corrosion.”
